22 Best Things We Saw at Americana Music Fest 2015

From a hushed showcase by Jewel to raucous rave-ups by Los Lobos and JD McPherson, Rolling Stone Country singles out the most mesmerizing performances of the annual festival

Best Take You to Church: Jewel

No one can silence a room quite like Jewel. Armed with only her voice, the Grammy-winning artist, who released the folky new album Picking Up the Pieces on September 11th, walked onstage at Nashville's City Winery and hushed an AmericanaFest crowd with a soaring rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." It was a master class in vocal technique, full of controlled runs, whispered phrasing and, when necessary, loud, lingering notes. While she may be best identified as a songwriter and poet, Jewel is a singer's singer, and she reminded fans of that fact when she picked up her guitar for the hits "Who Will Save Your Soul" and "Hands," as well as cuts from the latest LP. She's also refreshingly loose: two lines into the new album track "Plain Jane," she decided she didn't want to sing that song anymore. It was a shame, actually: the ballad is a standout from Picking Up the Pieces. J.H.

Is Plain Jane really a ballad? :unsure:

If anything, it's one of the few songs on that song that isn't a ballad, I think.

 :thumbsdown:
Nope.  Me and Mrs agree.  Not a ballad.  And she has a degree in music, so, I'm gonna trust her.  She's also not a Jewel fan, so she would be the first to call  :bs:

Small rant:
This is exactly why people that have no clue about music - shouldn't be reviewing it, (Oxford comma, I like 'em)  and why "paid writers" should be skilled at the art of writing.  /rant

:oops: I meant it's one of the few songs on the album that isn't a ballad.

And, yeah, what the heck? The internet is great because it facilitates a much quicker exchange of information, but it's ridiculous because everyone with a bit of free time and a wordpress blog is now a freaking journalist.

I guess we get what we pay for.  ::2

Thanks, Obama. :angry:

Absolutely!  That and the disappearance and lack of usage of the Oxford comma.
